in the school production of toad hall. probably her most fascinating relationship was with margaret thatcher and in the course of our reporting i gained some great insights into how that relationship worked and some of which contradicted the common view. the queen does not have executive power, but she does have unique influence. in her role as head of state she represents government officially at home and abroad but she also serves as the head of nations which means that she connects with people to reward their achievements and remain in touch with their concerns. to decades past the normal retirement age, she still does something like 400 engagements a year. traveling around the united kingdom, cities as well as tiny hamlets. charles pole who served as private secretary for john meyer and margaret thatcher told me that the queen knows every inch of this country and in a way no one else does. she spends so much time meeting people that she has an understanding of what other people's lives are like. she understands what the normal human condition is. she has also spent an extraordinary amoun

, is margaret carlson of bloomberg news. margaret, great to see you. before i get to you, i want to send a question over to our folks on set. senator bradley, someone who has in fact run for president, i want to ask you the question of michelle obama as a surrogate has never been one that i think has been unanswered in the public sphere which is to say she's always been great, right? last night, i think she took it to a new level and while she never named mitt romney or his vp, her speech was very much a point by point take-down of everything they represent. i want to know what you thought of her speech. >> i thought her speech was exceptional. i thought one of the things she did extremely well is everything she said, you could tell she felt deeply and personally. so it came across tremendously authentic and therefore, had a lot of power. and she talked not simply about the president but about the country, about their lives together, their family, where they come from, and she's talked i think brilliantly about making sure you reach back and give other people the same chances that you've

want to go to margaret brennan, who is at the state department. margaret, understandably, this is difficult authorifor those a state department and government. what is the u.s. doing right now, and how concerned are they about other americans? >> reporter: they're very concerned about u.s. installations all around the world, particularly the mideast region. secretary of state hillary clinton is expected to begin addressing some of these concerns shortly from the treaty room here at the state department. what we do know is the secretary and her top deputies worked through the evening in what was originally thought to be an extraction operation. in other words, there was the hope that some of those who had come under fire at the consulate in benghazi, libya, could have been saved. it became apparent well into the evening that was not the case. at 10:00 p.m. it was reported there was one fatality. we have learned since then that four u.s. government personnel were killed in that skirmish in benghazi, libya. the exact details are not clear just yet. we're hoping the secretary

a softer tone today, a change from his original president. joining us, three guests, ben smith, margaret hoover and maria cardova. maria, do you want to respond to that? >> sure. frankly it's just a misguided notion. i think a majority of the american voters will see it that way. i guess they have to do something because they're so behind on the issue of foreign policy that i guess they feel they have to throw everything plus the kitchen sink to see if they can make a dent in president obama's leadership here and frankly it shows in the numbers. he's ahead by, what, 8 to 10 points on foreign policy. and i think frankly the blunder that mitt romney made earlier this week in attacking president obama on 9/11 with misguided facts i think underscores the fact that he is just not ready to be commander in chief and they're worried about that. >> margaret, i don't want to rehash too much history but was that a blunder? >> i think even mitt romney has suggested that within a certain time frame maybe he might not have said it that way but he has stuck to his word that he and the president agree t

, the man who is supposed to take over next month. our state department correspondent margaret brennan has been looking into this. >> reporter: the last photo of the man expected to be china's next president, 59-year-old xi jinping, was taken on september 1. for the past ten days, he has not shown up at any scheduled public events. his apparent disappearance has sparked speculation in the world press. when asked about it at a news conference, a chinese foreign ministry spokesman refused to comment. "i hope that you can ask more serious questions" he said. adding to the mystery: government sensors are blocking search results for xi's name. the intrigue began after xi canceled a meeting set for last wednesday with secretary of state hillary clinton. state department staff members who were in beijing to meet with chinese leadership were told around 11:00 the night before that the secretary's meeting with mr. xi was canceled. the chinese ministry cited unexpected scheduling reasons. his latest political twist comes at a crucial point. china's fast-growing economy is slowing down and chinese au
